Shattered Sun Premiere “Shades Of Melodie” Music Video

Shattered Sun have premiered a new video for their new song “Shades Of Melodie.“ The track will appear on the band’s upcoming album, which you can help finance via GoFundMe.

Marcos Leal commented:

“This song is particularly special to me given it’s about my daughter Melodie. It’s safe to say that becoming a father changes a man – it becomes your every living and dying breath to be the guide and protector to your child. I know a lot of people can relate to the message of this song and I’m excited for you all to get a taste of the new era of Shattered Sun!”

The band added:

“We are currently in the process of finishing our new album, as well as shopping for a new label home. We have decided not to wait – we’re ready to share our new single with all of you and introduce you to a new era of Shattered Sun. As we’ve prepared to release this album independently, we have exhausted all our funds – personally covering all costs on the production of this album.

We ask that our amazing fans consider pre-ordering our album via our new GoFundMe campaign, which will in turn help us finish the album and bring you new music with the remaining funds raised. We are nothing without our fans behind us! Thank you!”

Ill Niño Announce New Lineup, Premiere New Song “Sangre” (UPDATED)

UPDATE: Cristian Machado, Ahrue Luster, and Diego Verduzco are now claiming they never left Ill Niño.

Original Story:

Ill Niño have parted ways with singer Cristian Machado and guitarists Ahrue Luster and Diego Verduzco. Taking their places will be vocalist Marcos Leal (Shattered Sun), rhythm guitarist Sal Dominguez (ex-Upon A Burning Body), and lead guitarist Jes Dehoyos (Sons Of Texas). With this news, the band have also shared a new song titled “Sangre.”

Drummer Dave Chavarri commented:

“Sometimes being in a band is like being married – sometimes people grow apart and no longer see eye to eye, and a separation becomes inevitable. We wish our former members the best in their musical careers, and are pumped to move forward with our new band members. Not only have we toured with them, but they’re very respected, seasoned musicians, and dudes that have always been our ‘Familia’ since day one.”

Leal added:

“Anyone who knows me knows the love I have for this band. I got my start singing Ill Niño covers in my younger years and this band has always held a special place in my heart. When the opportunity arose to front one of my favorite bands of all time, it was something I needed to consider.”

Jinjer To Miss Texas Dates Of Cradle Of Filth’s Tour, Shattered Sun Added

Jinjer will be missing the Texas dates of their North American tour with Cradle Of Filth and Uncured due to visa issues. Shattered Sun have been recruited to fill in for them.

Jinjer commented:

“BAD NEWS TEXAS …

Sadly we are forced to miss the first three shows of the Cradle Of Filth tour … although our Visas are approved we are still waiting for the final documents so we can fly out. We´d hoped we would get them today but we didn’t …

Unfortunately getting Visas for a band like us is not as easy it sounds or as we hoped … We are totally gutted that we can’t make it out there yet but it’s literally not in our hands right now. We are currently working on rescheduling these Texas shows for later so don’t lose hope- you will see us there sooner than later! That’s a promise!

We will be starting the tour in Ft. Lauderdale on April 2nd! On a good note – we just added a final headline show in Washington so at least that’s a little bit of good news today …”

Shattered Sun Premiere “Blame” Music Video

Shattered Sun have premiered a new video for their song “Blame,” via Revolver. This track is from their latest album “The Evolution Of Anger.“

Marcos Leal said the following:

“This song defines the mood of the new record and the center of the anger I felt writing it. In today’s world everyone points the finger at each other, places the blame on each other and no one wants to be liable for their surrounding negative situations.

Some people tend to hide in the shadows of cowardice, yet are the first to condemn others to the eyes of the public. This song is our message: We aren’t asleep and you can’t bury us all.”
